Age of Empires Castle Siege Wiki

"An order of elite religious warriors. Highly trained, equipped, and motivated, they were some of the best knights of Europe."


  • Knight Templars are powerful warriors that seek out enemy troops. They use the speed of their mounts to reach the enemy quickly. Deploy Templars to destroy enemy defenders.
  • Damage bonus against towers and walls
  • High health cavalry
  • Slowest cavalry unit.
  • Moderate damage against all buildings and defenses other than towers.
  • Lowest attack per second of all cavalry units.

Offensive Strategy

  • Deadly combination with crossbowman at taking down the towers.
  • Can absorb a lot of damage, so good tank units too.
  • Work well as a bunched unit, as their high health allows them to outlast adversaries, and together, they have relatively high attack.

Defensive Strategy

  • Can prevail at patrol points as their high health allows them to absorb hits from bunched longbowman and take down a few.
